Bladen Marlborough Botrytised Riesling (2011)

Instantly appealing, the 2011 vintage (4*) was estate-grown, hand-picked in late May and made in a low-alcohol (9.5 per cent alcohol), sweet style (180 grams/litre of residual sugar). Light yellow, it is fresh and concentrated, citrusy and finely balanced, with a slightly spicy, rounded finish.
